What's Blooming In my yard
It's been strange weather, but the blooms are waking up. I think I already posted pics of the snowball bushes and the Japanese maples. The iris are peaking now:
Front Iris Beds (after a huge rain...hard on the blooms)
The bigger daylily bed is beyond these iris. The blueberry bushes are the shrubs on the left past the iris, and the monster New Dawn rose is the big mound of green just to the left of the left iris bed. New Dawn is covered with buds, but a little slow blooming this year. (You can see the greenery of another daylily bed to the right of the right iris bed.)
Back Iris bed: (that splash of white is a fringe tree across from the iris bed, along with some roses, and a row or two of daylilies) Pink double knock- outs are at back of iris bed - far right of picture)
A couple close ups:
And the roses are beginning to bloom:

I love this rose. anytime you get near it, the fragrance just surrounds you...delicate, delicious rose.
Compassion is in bloom, and is a nice contrast next to the old tree:
And I like to sit on my bench, drink lemonade, and look at the garden all around me.
I don't get to do it a lot, since there is a lot of garden and it takes a lot of working, but it is what I like to do. Hope you like the glimpses of my garden this spring.
